city's la guardia airport. philly international delays. it's likely we'll continue to see the delays piling up across northeast. even when the rainfall and snowfall is over because you'll still have to deal with that wind gusting over 30, 40 miles per hour at times across northeast and that's also going to make it feel a lot colder. so keep that in mind. wind chill temperatures typically between 5 to 10 degrees cooler than what the thermometer means. the winter storm warnings in pen opinion and other partials are in effect and in some spots, even into tomorrow morning, and again that's because of the wind. it will be picking up that snow that's on the ground and blowing it around and producing near whiteout conditions along roadways. very dangerous out there. you really shouldn't be doing any commuting if you don't have to. look how much additional snowfall, this is on top of what we already have on the ground expected across portions of new england. that dark blue is over a foot of snow and that purple, that's over two feet of snow. so incredible and very impresssive amount, even th

but the truth is this is the very corrupt regime from top to bottom and what the international has allowed the chinese people to do is expose that corruption. we saw it earlier this year with a rising star in the chinese party taken down, the blind lawyer living in new york city, a very famous on the internets and has become more so since he has been here. they have an issue because they need to curb corruption but don't have tools to do and cracking down on the internet will give the viewer tools. adam: would be in the regime's best interest to allow the flow of information and chinese citizens to call out the corruption? >> not of you are a 1-party state. we are sitting in the united states, democracy is different. the question for investors is what kind of companies might be hit by this. i point you to micro block operator which operates a twitterunlike slightt chinese stocks have been volatile and subject to regulation which is very difficult to predict so here you go, another example of the risks of investing in china. >> appreciate you being here. the florida kissel are watching so w
